    Got a call for some bees that had been there for two weeks. Were going in beside of a chimney.

    There was a small roof at the corner that had been removed and the wall never patched up right.

    Nice crack between the wall and brick.

    About half way done, there was a good five gallon bucket of honey.

    Jim, Megan's Dad, holding the queen. He claims to have had a good time, with that grin I think it was better than that. Thanks for all of your help Jim, and I found my baggie of rubber bands, they had some how gotten inside the sleeve of my bee jacket :lol:

    All finished up, notice the spray foam in the upper left corner, that is where they were coming in at.

    Left the five frame nuc there and went back after dark to get it.

    When I got home the first time I opened up the bee vac to let the gals fly, I bet there was 6 pounds of bees in there. Went out this morning to combine the vac bees with the brood frames and there was only a handful of bees left. Hope they at least drifted over to one of my other hives. Will need to combine these with another weak hive I have. Let the queen loose this morning also, nice fat red/orange looking gal.

    Brilliant!
    What a nice clean job you did, hole no bigger than necessary, everything all tidied up. Very professional.
    You make it look easy but anyone that has done one knows that isn't always the case.
    I doff my hat to you :hi: When it comes to removals, you're right up there. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Nice job. Good PR, too. That's what makes an A-1 removal. Congrats on a job well done.

    haha you caught me, that one is made out of cherry plywood I had laying around for the last 25 years, they were old cabinet parts.
